Star Trek Discovery: Solving the Picard Maneuver

The “Picard Maneuver,” it was a thing of legend back in the days when Star Trek: The Next Generation aired. Fans of the show know exactly what I am referring to. It was the move that Patrick Stewart’s Jean-Luc Picard had to do with his uniform every time the Captain had to stand. His command tunic would ride up and require him to give it a quick tug downward to keep him looking regally Captain like. When the planning for Star Trek: Discovery on CBS All Access, was underway they put a lot of thought into the practical consideration of

Another Look How Thanos Was Created for ‘Avengers: Infinity War’

mllkatI am a 50 something child of the 70’s who admits to being a Star Trek/Star Wars/Comic Book junkie who once dove head first over a cliff (Ok, it was a small hill) to try to rescue his Fantastic Four comic from a watery grave. I am married to a lovely woman who is as crazy as I am and the proud parent of a 15 year old boy with autism. My wife and son are my real heroes. https://mllkat63.wordpress.com

Coming Soon: How to paint Characters the Marvel Studio Way

When I was a young man, I saw myself as either an artist for Disney or a Marvel comic book artist. I could see myself right up there with Jack Kirby or  my personal favorite John Buscema. Imagine my excitement when looking through my favorite book store and finding “How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way” by Stan Lee and John Buscema. This was my golden ticket to the big time…or so I thought. Fast forward….a number of years and I never quite made my dreams of Marvel Artistry come true however, if you’ve ever looked at any of the

Thanos “Black Order” Returns In A Limited Edition Series

Marvel Comic fans remember The Black Order was introduced as Thanos’ top generals, the Cull Obsidian, in Marvel’s Infinity.

This will come as good news

With Dark Nights: Metal reaching its conclusion, that does not mean fans will not be getting even more “bad to the bone” looking Dark Knights, as writer Scott Snyder and artist Jock work on the new miniseries The Batman Who Laughs. This new series will feature the most memorable baddie from Snyder and Greg Capullo’s big DC event series. Some of the new design work by Jock has been revealed on social media by both the artist and by Snyder featuring a new Dark Knight, who is “all lethal force.” At least that is the way Snyder describes it.

Lady Sif – Have You Seen This Woman?

This is a missing person report. While there have been reports of her possible demise. I refuse to believe it. That person is the Lady Sif. She was Thor’s lady in Asgard before Jane Foster came around. And she was loyal to her man, even begging Hela to spare him when she came to take the son of Odin. Her desperate pleas touched even Hela’s ice heart so she spared him…just this once. I have been a fan of the Lady Sif back when Jack Kirby first drew the Mighty Thor and even more so when John Buscema did the

‘Game of Thrones’: What if Daenerys Never Received Her Dragon Eggs?

 As the end of Game of Thrones draws nears there is one thing that is relatively undeniable, Dragons tip the scale of power in a battle. One need only ask Jaime Lannister when his army was attacked by Denaerys Stormborn Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, her three full grown dragons and her army of Dothraki screamers. While it is true that the Dothraki did a great deal of damage to the Lannister army, it was her three dragons that laid waste to the soldiers, the wagons, and their weapons. Only by Bronn’s last second heroics (or interference, depending on whose
